It is not the "stop" that is still there and I am putting it into the slot the proper way so it seats itself. It just seems that the cable has become to short. I just got back from a ride and it was 10-15 mph without any twist on the throttle. It feels to me that there is something missing in the throttle twist on the handelbar. When I turn it forward to what should be idle, it still goes. Also, yesterday when I turned the throttle, it felt like something snapped becuase there was a certain resistance and return that was not there. But, as I said, I took the twist throttle apart and everyting seemed to be in order, i.e., the cable was still attached where it should be (but I have never taken it apart before).

Thanks for thinking about this with me.
